The VISION Excelerator has a unique business approach. Our core team is comprised of a network of experts, entrepreneurs and project leaders who have come together in what might be termed a cooperative.

Our active team is working on regional initiatives around Solomon Source's key approach called the Regional Revitalization and Empowerment Strategy (RRES). We work with individuals, communities and organizations for Project Visioning, strategic planning and comprehensive strategy development. 

As projects come online, they become "affiliates" and their endeavors become a part of our network.
